The Dark Hedges in County Amtrin in Ireland is a stretch of road planted with over 150 beech trees by the Stuart family in the 18th century, once the entrance to their estate. Now, it is part of Bregagh Road and served as a picturesque filming location for the “King’s Road.” It appeared in the second season, as Arya escapes Kings Landing with Gendry, Yoren and Hot Pie as a little boy. Game of Thrones tourism has been so prevalent that vehicular traffic was banned in 2017 on this road, after it was overrun with visitors.

In 2016, a storm hit the Dark Hedges. Two fallen trees were transformed into pub doors, carved with scenes from Game of Thrones.
